The remains of the Yemi?kapan? Inn have been uncovered during excavations in northwestern Turkey.

During the works, the wall remains of Yemi?kapan? Khan were found. The khan is known to have been built in 1588 and served as a fruit and vegetable bazaar for the public in the Ottoman era. The wall was revealed at a two-meter depth and officials decided to continue excavations to reach the continuation of the wall.

Edirne Deputy Mayor Ertu?rul Tanr?kulu said that a 12-person team was working in the excavation area, adding, “Now works will continue to find the whole khan. Following two months of work, the khan will be covered with glass.”
